Washington Post on Jacques Montouroy

“What I really love is to have them play spectacular football,” Mr. Montouroy said in 2000. “To have them do things other people can’t do.”

Mr. Montouroy was born Oct. 1, 1946, and grew up in the Bordeaux region of France.

He became an aid worker by an accident of circumstance. In 1967, while finishing compulsory military service at a post in what is now Burkina Faso, he played a game of pickup basketball. One of his teammates was a country representative for Catholic Relief Services, the international humanitarian agency of the U.S. Catholic community.
